Starbucks and same sex marriage.

In regards to the recent comments by Howard Schultz, CEO of Starbucks on same sex marriage I have this to say. Too many Christians seem to think that they can shame or strong arm people into changing their beliefs. I think that was called the Crusades a few hundred years ago and if you ask many people how that went most would probably say not too good.

The bottom line is that if the SCOTUS rules in favor of same sex marriage God will not be scrambling for a Plan B. God is in complete control and He does not need us to fix things or people. He is perfectly capable of doing that himself. If God allows this to take place he will not have to apologize for Sodom and Gomorrah as some morons think. God apologizes to no one! Also, the homosexuals will probably find out rather quickly that their right to marry will not satisfy; it will not create a panacea. Just ask most heterosexual couples! Do I support redefining marriage? Absolutely not, it is not ours to define or redefine; God defined marriage back in Genesis 2.

In lieu of this, what if we went out in droves to Starbucks and showed the love of Christ to those who work there instead of throwing insults at them. What if we actually apologized for how many Christians have responded to Mr. Shultz comments? I would be willing to bet that when he was crafting his comments he knew exactly how most “Christians” would respond. He knew that most would get angry and protest. What if we shocked Mr. Shultz and the Board of Directors with the love of Christ.

What people need is the Gospel. That is the only thing that can save us from ourselves. The Gospel is what the CEO of Starbucks needs to hear and it is what I need to hear over and over and over! Let’s share the Gospel instead of sharing the anger and bitterness. Peace out!


  1. Preach it brother! It is the kindness and love of God that led us to salvation - strange that after receiving this kindness we then think that we should offer something different to the world.

  2. Thanks. It is hard, at times, to balance love and truth. We tend to get too heavy with one or the other.
